Lesson: Cold Process Soap Making

Cold Process Indigo Soap Making

Indigo herb comes from india and is fermented in water to release the indigo powder. 
This is a very old traditional process and is still happening the same.

True indigo powder can be hard to find because the market
has been flooded with cheap artificial indigo colorants.

The real stuff can be a bit expensive.

 If you can’t find real indigo, you can use cocoa powder,
paprika or even ground cinnamon in place of indigo powder. 

The color will obviously be different, but you will still get a wonderful cold process soap.

I don’t recommend you use chili pepper or cayenne
for a color.  The spicy heat can cause irritation.

Cold Process Rosemary Soap Making

For this soap we use Quebracho which comes from a native tree in South America. 
You can substitute this for Cocoa or Paprika (or a blend of the two to make a dark orange).

We will also be adding Myrobalan which are ground nuts from
a native tree in Nepal.  You can also use turmeric for this color.

For this cold process soap recipe we will be adding essential oil for scent. 
Rosemary and Peppermint are two essential oils
that survive the saponification process. 
Another is Lavender.

Cold Process Goat or Vegan Milk Soap Making

This process allows you to create a rich soothing healing soap.

You will get the same results with a vegan milk such as hemp , soy or coconut milk.

You need
patience and time to make this one because if you try to speed up the process
you will get a burned, ammonia scented batch that you
will be very unhappy with.
I have replace all of the water in this cold process soap recipe
with organic whole fat goat’s milk.

Cold Process Wine and Beer Soap Making

This process can be used with both wine or beer.

It’s challenging to make a cold process soap with alcohol as the liquid since
the soap batch will want to seize when it is introduced to the alcohol.

Make Your Own Infused Oils and Extracts

This recipe is a great alternative to expensive herb oils that you would buy from
a supplier. They are made the same way.

These are not essential oils. They are herbal oils.

In order to make essential oils, I would need a field of plant materials. 

It takes 1 million rose petals to make 1 ounce of essential oil.

You can make any type of herbal extract you want. 
You don’t have to purchase them from a supplier. 

This way you know exactly what is in them.

You can also use equal parts vegetable glycerin to distilled water. 

You do not need to use alcohol to extract the plant material if you don’t want to.

Lesson: Hot Process Soap Making

Hot Process Lime Soap Making

Citrus Essential Oils tend to cook out of Cold Process Soap,
but they are a perfect choice for hot process soap making because
by the time you add the citrus oil (in our case Lime Essential Oil),
the soap will have already gone through the saponification process (when oil, water and alkali turn into soap).

For the color of this soap, I will be using powdered Lime Leaves.

a wonderful colored soap too.

The next hot process soap we will make is Chocolate and Silk Soap.

We will be melting silk fibers in the Sodium Hydroxide
and water mixture.  This way we will be able
to add this luxurious ingredient to our soap.

This step is completely optional though.
If you prefer not to add the silk, just skip that step.

Hot Process Shampoo and Shaving Soap Making

These shampoo and shaving bars are uniquely different from your basic soap
since there is a built in conditioner and extra vitamins that are wonderful for your hair.

These bars are not only great for washing and conditioning your hair,
but many men and women love it for shaving,
since it leaves such a soothing feel to the skin after it is washed off.

 This is one of my best sellers.

Hot Process Beer and Wine Soap Making

This Wine or Beer Soap is slightly easier to make than the Cold Process method
since you do not need to worry too much about the soap seizing once the alcohol is added. 

This makes a great base for Beer Shampoo Bars and Antioxidant Soap Bars.

Hot Process Non Milled Soap Making

This is a different way to approach French milled soap.  

Instead of adding water and reheating the soap, we are going to add it to a fresh batch of hot process soap.

This makes a soap with the same texture and pour of a newly created hot process soap.

This is a great way to use up your soap scraps.

Olive or Castile Liquid Soap Making

This is also known as Castile liquid soap

It is the most popular type of liquid soap on the market,
and it’s usually thickened with borax or chemicals. 
I have chosen not to thicken mine because I like it to be as natural
as possible.

Soy Liquid Soap Making

I like soy liquid soap because it has a lot of the same
characteristics of Olive Liquid soap, but it produces more bubbles.

It’s also cheaper to make than olive, so it’s a good choice for
all purpose cleaners. 

It also works well in shampoos.

worth it.

Hemp Seed Oil Liquid Soap is a
very special soap.  It keeps the hemp scent and creates a
